Bombay House in Provo, Utah

Also, located in Sugar House in Salt Lake...

Favorite:

Ah Bombay House, such a good ol' favorite.
Apparently in India they make their food very spicy-hot, so if that's your experience and didn't like it, give it another shot here at the Bombay House. 
Just be sure to order your food mild or medium. 

We're medium to hot folks.


Vegetable Pakora: seasoned mixed vegetables
mixed with chickpea flour and deep fried
Pakora is one of our favorite Indian dishes.


Strawberry Lassi: refreshing yogurt drink
blended with strawberries and homemade yogurt

Paneer Masala: homemade cheese cooked with bell pepper, onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, cream and spices


Lamb Coconut Kurma: boneless lamb cooked with coconut milk, onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, cashew nuts, golden raisins and spices
The flavors and spices used in Indian food is a beautiful thing.


Garlic Naan: teardrop-shaped white bread baked in tandoor (clay oven) with a touch of garlic
Cucumber Raita: a tangy mixture of cucumber, tomatoes, onions and spices
mixed with fresh homemade yogurt

Peshawari Naan: Indian bread stuffed with a mix of coconut, raisins and cashews,
and baked in tandoor (clay oven)
This Peshawari Naan was a new one for us. The mixture of ground up bits of coconut, raisins, and cashews was sweet and nutty. Loved it.

Family friendly. $10-15 per entree. A well-run business is how I feel about Bombay House.

Center Street Deli in Provo, Utah

Update: Closed due to medical complications of head staff. Stay posted though, because they closed with a hope of opening a future Center Street Deli Part 2. I hope so!!

Favorite:



Everything made fresh from scratch, even the bread.


Boar's Head meats and cheeses--always a good thing.
I was informed that they use fresh meat every day. Any leftovers they either take home for their families, or give to the local homeless or hungry.


S. L. T. - Serrano Ham, Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado, Baby Swiss Cheese on Flatbread
The Sarrano Ham is imported directly from Italy. She gave us a sample and I was sold.
Also, the flatbread was freshly cooked on the grill to-order.
